Description

Celviano

The Celviano line of pianos has been refined for those who demand an authentic grand piano experience. The new AP-260’s traditional design houses new stereo grand piano sounds and redesigned keyboard action. Utilizing a new tri-sensor spring-less 88 note scaled hammer action, every nuance and detail of your performance is captured. A new 4 layer stereo grand piano sound is delivers a natural, expressive and dynamic piano experience.

Piano Sound

The grand piano sounds in the AP-260 deliver an unprecedented level of realism and expression. Four dynamic levels of stereo piano samples are integrated with Casio’s proprietary Linear Morphing System, for a grand piano sound with seamless transitions and a superior dynamic range. For added realism, the AP-260 simulates the sound of open strings when the dampers are raised by the pedal using Acoustic Resonance DSP.

Education Features

The AP-260 features a total of 18 built-in tones, with the ability to layer two sounds or split the keyboard to allow a bass sound in the left hand. It has a built-in library of 60 songs that can be practiced at any tempo utilizing the dual headphone outputs or the internal speaker system. Celviano’s Duet Mode allows student and teacher to practice at the keyboard simultaneously.

Advanced Technology

To complete the piano experience, the AP-260 features 128 notes of polyphony, enough horsepower to the most demanding musical passages and the ability to layer sounds and use the damper pedal without worry of dropped notes. In addition the AP-260 can connect effortlessly to your computer via USB without the need to install drivers.

Concert Play

High-quality audio data recordings of 10 live orchestra performances are installed. Pianists can play along with recordings and enjoy the feeling of participating in a magnificent performance. Musical scores of the concerts are bundled.

Powered by AiR

Multi-Dimensional Morphing AiR (Acoustic and Intelligent Resonator) Sound Source Casio’s new AiR technology, redefines the Celviano digital piano experience with richer and more genuine sounds. The AiR sound source enables the new Celviano models to deliver first-class realism and detail by providing damper resonance, which enhances the sounds of the dampers lifting off the strings when pushing on the sustain petal. Casio’s AiR technology also compensates for the speed at which hammers strike strings at different velocities and key ranges, imperative for those who crave the authentic sounds and feel of a traditional grand piano.

USB MIDI

Casio continues the tradition or providing “class compliant” USB connectivity on Celviano digital pianos. This allows Celviano to be used with Mac or Windows computers without the need for downloading drivers. Class Compliant USB MIDI also allows Celviano digital pianos to be used as a controller for the Apple iPad by using Apple’s Camera Connection Kit.
